Soldering / tinning the exposed wires before screwing to the terminal is the best approach. I also find that twisting the strands together tightly can greatly reduce the stray strands that stick out from under the screw on the terminal.

If a wire strand is sticking out a bit, and it isn’t close to another terminal, it’s not really a danger. If it’s long and wandering over toward another terminal, then I would consider that a problem.
